There is horrible ambiguity in this article I hope you can address it - it kind of sounds like epubor only works when Google offers epub and not if they only offer pdf. But on the other hand, other parts make it sound like it works for both. It's just unclear and I'm pretty anxious because I believe the book I'm thinking about buying in PDF only.
